This post is definitely for New Yorkers and appreciators of an aesthetically pleasing literary portrayal of the American Dream. New Yorkers are prevalent to this post because the flagship Prada store in SoHo will be displaying the Great Gatsby Costumes until May 16th. Although I haven’t seen the film yet, I do have a Masters in English and a passion for the literary arts. American author F. Scott Fitzgerald coming to the big screen with Miuccia Prada and Catherine Martin designing the characters costumes will not only be an artistic venture but a galvanizing event of couture proportions.
If you’ve been following my blog over the years then you surely know that I’ve dabbled in more than just a few posts analyzing dress as they were portrayed in the literary timetable of style. How to Dress Like an 18th Century Gentlewoman sound familiar? There is a dynamic form in which the merit of fashion continues to manifest. With this manifestation, new roles and expectations arise taking that fashion and assigning it to a traditional system of social status that continues to evolve. Therefore there is no denying that with the elegance of Miuccia Prada’s vision for the Great Gatsby, the costumes will prove to be no less than extraordinary.
I’m definitely looking forward to the film’s rendition of the Classic Gatsby!
